UIDAI continue with Aadhaar-based e-KYC for Airtel till March 31


The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has allowed Bharti Airtel to continue Aadhaar-based e-KYC verification of telecom subscribers till March 31,

The UIDAI canceled the E-KYC license of both Airtel and Airtel Payments Bank for the opening of their account in Airtel Payments Bank without the consent of the customers and linking them with the LPG subsidy. After this, the account of 31 lakh Airtel Subscribers had credited with LPG subsidy of 190 crores.

Airtel had transferred the LPG subsidy of Rs 138 crore to its original link accounts to the customers and UIDAI had an interim penalty of 2.5 crores. Post that, UIDAI had allowed the E-KYC based re-verification of the customers from January 10 to Airtel. Now the Authority has extended this moratorium to March 31.

The reason behind allowing the Airtel to e-KYC verification for SIM is due to the Supreme Court’s deadline of March 31 and the inconvenience caused to the customers. Airtel spokesperson said that we will be in touch with the authorities and will resolve all the issues raised by them. It is very important for us to follow all the guidelines and we will definitely do this.

However, the UIDAI still has the cancellation of the E-KYC license of Airtel Payments Bank. The Authority says that this license will not renew until the inquiry is completed and audit reports do not come from the Department of Telecom, RBI etc. After looking at the audit report, UIDAI will consider the issue on February 10.
